Saw house for GI couple (1951) on Visions of Wright.
Please let know if anyone has more info - an isometric or next exterior view.

Can you be more specific about the house you saw ? The mention of it doesn't seem to be ringing any bells here. What did the house -- presumably in a drawing -- look like ?

Is there a link to "Visions of Wright" ? That might help . . .

Thanks for the interesting question.

Thanks, Meisolus. Taschen Vol. III contains an entry for the "House for G.I. Couple," with plan only. This is preceded by two projects from four years earlier upon which the GI couple house is based.












The plans:

In each case, it seems, the house was to be situated on ground which descended from the entry and carport level, toward the view -- not an unreasonable assumption or fact -- as suggested by the interior and exterior steps . . .

Notice that this repeated project has a principal window-wall in the living room that FLW got built in 1948 for the Levin House in Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo.
